From Slavery to Freedom

Sponsor: The Oprah Winfrey Foundation

From Slavery to Freedom portrays three centuries of slavery from its introduction into the Americas to its abolition at the end of the American Civil War. The exhibit describes who the enslaved were, why they were brought here, how they lived, how they were treated, and also who their allies were - and how ultimately they became free! A 12-minute companion film provides a dramatic overview of this dramatic story.
